Amazon Alexa Introduces ‘Taylor’s Version’ Feature for Exclusive Insights on Taylor Swift’s New Album

1 Mins read

Amazon’s Alexa is now programmed to give fans an intimate experience with Taylor Swift’s upcoming album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” which is set to release on April 19. In a unique promotional twist, Swift herself will answer questions about her new album directly through Alexa devices.

This integration, dubbed “Alexa (Taylor’s Version),” allows users to interact with the pop star’s voice instead of the traditional Alexa responses. For instance, when fans inquire, “When does Taylor Swift’s new album come out?” they will be greeted by Swift’s own voice saying, “Hey it’s Taylor Swift. My new album The Tortured Poets Department is out this Friday. All is fair in love and poetry.”

Swift’s collaboration with Amazon Alexa marks a significant step in using voice-assisted technology for direct artist interaction, highlighting her innovative approach to album promotions. This new feature builds on her history of creative marketing strategies. Swift has been proactive in reclaiming her musical narrative and presence across various platforms, recently becoming the only artist from Universal Music Group to feature her tracks on TikTok prior to the album’s release.

The promotional efforts for “The Tortured Poets Department” don’t stop there. Swift has also engaged in a partnership with Spotify to create a library installation in Los Angeles, where fans can discover more about the album through poetry displayed on antiquated parchment, albeit branded with Spotify’s logo. This method continues her trend of blending traditional music promotion with modern digital marketing, as seen with her previous album, “Midnights,” which also saw partnerships spanning TikTok, Spotify, Amazon Prime’s Thursday Night Football, and Tumblr.

These collaborations are part of a broader strategy employed by Swift and other artists to maximize album sales through multiple album variants and exclusive partnerships, enhancing fan engagement and leveraging new sales avenues.

As Swift continues to innovate within the music industry, her use of Amazon Alexa for this album rollout not only provides fans with a novel way to interact with their favorite artist but also sets a new standard for personalization in music promotion.
